She's the breezy voice on the telephone, bringing life into
the lonely days of her elderly clients ... But who's
calling Miranda Blue?
Not a soul -- which is the way Miranda likes it. From her
sweet, ramshackle house in the middle of Colorado's pinto
bean country, she can run her tele-companionship service
while steering clear of men. No more sexy, Big City bad
boys. No more tangled, short-lived relationships. Just
those eager, grateful voices on the other end of the line,
appreciating what Miranda Blue does best: talking.
William Wordsworth "Billy" Steadman, a young widower and
greenhouse farmer, has been a man of few words. With the
arrival of his eccentric and reclusive new neighbor,
however, he willingly rises to her rebuffs, determined to
interact in the flesh while bantering his way to her heart.
Now he's spoiling her dogs. She's feeding his fish. And if
they'd just let each other in, together they might find a
little of that precious, elusive commodity called happiness.
This call's for you, Miranda Blue. Pick up!
